Ideal for families as the water is shallow for quite a distance. It was quiet in September but is probably busier July & August. The snack bar rents out basic sunbeds. Beware the fish that nip you in the water!

Small beach but ideal for children with shallow water and safe bathing. Sun beds and umbrellas 8 euros for the day. They are set too close together. Canteen on the beach serving beers, soft drinks, ice cream and toasted sandwiches. They also do chicken kebabs...More

Lovely shallow calm clear water. Small beach with volleyball net. Beds and parasols available but we didn't bother. Popular with locals so very busy late afternoon and weekends. Would be great for families with young children.

The bus from Chania stops on the main road in Chorafakia, then it's about a 15/20 min walk down hill on the way...up on the way back of course!
